How Memorials are Made

Memorials are as varied as the individuals they memorialize. At Milano Monuments, the memorial-building process begins with you!

Tell us your ideas. Tell us about the one you loved and lost. Together we will design the monument that is right for your memories. We guide you step-by-step through the design process, and with the aid of computers we can let you see your design options full-size before we commit them to stone.

Once the memorial design is chosen, we will preserve your memories with every bit of our renowned quality and a strict attention to detail. Milano Care-Crafted monuments set the standard for the industry. Carefully selected from only the finest domestic and international granites, our stones are painstakingly engraved to your specifications. Then, our expert engraver and sculptor add their highly skilled artwork to further personalize the stone.

The entire monument making process is done in-house so that we can ensure it is carried out, from start to finish, with the highest level of quality and care. It's the way our father did it in 1969, and it's the way we'll be doing it years from now.

If you would like to actually see a monument being designed and crafted, visit our facility on Brookpark Road in Cleveland and one of our staff will personally take you on a tour that includes our Milano Design Center, Granite Showcase, and StoneCrafters Studio.
